A widespread tendency established within contemporary curatorial practice

relates to the transgressive and interdisciplinary possibilities of food
and hospitality.

Employing open frameworks of interaction, these practices often promote art
as an instrument for social production and engagement, investing in ideas
of cooking and consumption as performative acts of exchange.

Combining these ideas of openness with recent thinking around
entrepreneurial start-ups and models of creative labour, *L O N G T A B L E
small plates* seeks to examine the potential for alternative means of
curatorial representation within the context of ‘small-plate dining’.
